An excellent and very thoughtful question...


I wonder how much China is paying Boko Haram to give them an excuse to militarize Nigeria?

Exactly... Well said indeed.


Thanks. I say that because China is very serious about protecting their off shore investments. Since they have the largest standing conventional military on Earth standing around doing nothing there is no way they are going to depend on Nigerian security forces to protect their new Lagos-Kano railroad so now under the guise of a seven billion dollar bid Nigeria will fund the operating cost of China's construction and security of China's railroad.

Nigeria Is Coming Apart at the Seams

At best, a revitalized Biafran secessionist movement will lead to mass bloodshed. At worst, it will trigger the country's unraveling


Nearly 50 years after the same region of Nigeria seceded, sparking a devastating civil war, separatists are once again threatening the fragile national unity of Africa’s most populous country. Back in 1967, the federal government deployed a quarter million troops to quash the secessionist movement, while also imposing a land and sea blockade.

I've watched several videos by the Biafra secessionists on FB, and still can't figure it out! Other than to say that the Biafrans seemed somewhat arrogant and tribalistic, which is contrary to PanAfrikanism!
